It is close to the Castillo de Colomares. Is a natural reserve of protection and nursering of eagles.
I had not been there, but my mother went there a few times with the kids of the school (she is a retired teacher) and always enjoyed.
We had planned to go soon and discover on our own
A castle dedicated to Cristobal Colon and the America discovery.
A mix of styles a strange building to describe. I suggest you to visit if you are on the area, but I am afraid it is no easy, we founded only by chance. Hope to get back to enjoy it with more time.
Castillo Bil Bil at Benalmadena costa.
Close to the sea you can find this nice castle of arabic influences. Was constructed at the 1930´s.
Now is being used for exhibitions from the town hall.
I like it specially at night.
I loved some of the decorations of the port, as I love gaudi mosaics, and the mix of Andalusian and Arabic stiles.
Maybe I also loved as lately I avoid crowded places and it was very quiet that thursday.
Maybe too much oriented to Brits... as personal opinion
We founded some lovely boats over there.
Normally I am not interested in them, but Stace, Julian and Nat love them, so we were watching the prices of some of them (guess some of them were really really expensive!!!!)
Puerto Marina has been always famous for its night life, I had gone a few times until I got feed up of hens parties and things like that.
But I never walked along the port on a no busy day, and I founded beautiful.
The unique nature of this port is based on it's architecture and it's exclusive design dreamt up by architect Eduardo Oria who combined styles of Indian, Arabic and Andalucian influences. It's unusual concept earned the port top awards in 1996 and 1998.
Plans are underway to double the size of the port and includes a stop-off point for cruisers. All manner of sports are available here and each year there are a number of special events such as sailing regattas and special fishing competitions.
You can get a great view of the mainland from out here.
Just wander down to the port and you will understand my title....its fantastic, the boats are to die for. Many little eating places, shops and bars to while away the afternoon in the afternoon sunshire, which we stiil had even though it was the end of Nov last year. A real spectacular marina I love it.
Whilst I was in Benalmadena I kept meaning to get round to going to this steam boat one night, just to try it. They have a dance hall on board and a bar. I wasn't sure if this was permanently parked at Benalmadena harbour, but it was there every night as you could see it from the mainland quite easily.
It's an original junk from hong kong the only one in Europe...

On the outskirts of Benalmadena is Colomares Castle and the Jardin de las Aguilas ( Garden of the Eagles), where visitors have the chance to see different birds of prey in free flight and they can find out about the ancient art of falconary.
The castle which is beautifully decorated is built in a variety of architectural styles
This aquarium isn't very big, but there are very good animal shows every hour and the enclosures are very nice. You can spend a good couple of hours here.
This nice little park is about a block up from the beach. It features a large pond full of fowl and fish.
All along the beach stretching for miles across Benalmadena and Torrelimos is this boardwalk full of restaurants and shops.
